With more than 20 years of experience as a specialized fulfilment partner of telecom providers, BNS Data Logistics BV from Vianen is now splitting into two companies in a new strategic direction; BNS Cosmos  and BNS  Netstar. “Our ambition is greater than the growth opportunities within the current market,” says Managing Director Jeroen van Kerkhof. “By splitting the company, we can serve existing customers even better from two separate propositions, while at the same time becoming more accessible to new target groups.”

BNS Cosmos

The fulfilment activities will be transferred to BNS Cosmos,a name that existing relations will recognize from BNS’ in-house developed automation system. Opened in Germany (Neuss) in 2018, the branch will also become part of BNS  Cosmos.

BNS Cosmos  provides all logistics services for the entire  lifecycle of a technological product. A distinctive feature of this is that BNS  Cosmos actively assists customers in maximizing the return of the products.

“We design the process specifically for each customer, whereby all activities from the moment of the first order to the final disposal of the product are ‘in scope’,” says Van Kerkhof. “Sustainability is an important theme, which is why, in addition to outbound logistics, we also take care of things like refurbishment, software updates and remarketing.  In this way, we contribute directly to the environmental objectives of our customers, including the reduction of CO2 emissions.”

In addition to the existing target group in the telecom sector, BNS Cosmos sees  opportunities in the market for ICT products, medical equipment and the Internet of Things. Not only for European customers, but also for American organizations that want to make the step to Europe.

BNS Netstar

The knowledge and expertise that BNS has in the field of development and delivery of network and telecom products will be housed in BNS Netstar. That name is derived from the company  Netstar  Products,with which BNS has entered into a partnership.

BNS Netstar  develops innovative networking and connectivity products for global Internet Service Providers, Installers and Enterprise AV distributors that give end users a better experience.

“Just like BNS, we were looking for a cooperation partner to facilitate further growth,” says Arthur de Jager, Commercial Director of BNS Netstar. “We see in the partnership on the one hand many similarities in the nature of the products and the way of working and on the other hand many opportunities to reinforce each other in thego-to-market strategy.”

BNS Netstar  has its own brands such as  Niveo professional (network equipment) and Lan-Do (cables and accessories) and completes the portfolio with the distribution of global brands such as  Icotera  (modems),  Amino  (TV Boxes), CTS (media converters) and Grandstream (IP telephony).

For the further development of the portfolio, BNS Netstar strongly believes in regional development and production. “In doing so, we increase the control and reliability of the  supply  chain, while reducing our ecological footprint and increasing the sustainability and recyclability of the products,” emphasizes De Jager.

Both companies now present themselves on the new websites that can be reached via www.bnscosmos.com and www.bnsnetstar.com respectively.
